The 52nd annual Grammy Awards will be held tonight and Kenny Chesney is nominated for the second year in a row, and second time overall.
The nomination is in the Best Country Collaboration with Vocals category for his duet “Down The Road” with Mac McAnally.
“Some things are just magic and you know it,” says Chesney. “I knew the first time I heard Mac sing this on his Simple Life record… the same place I heard ‘Back Where I Come From.’ It gets inside and lets you understood everything about life you don’t even realize. So it makes sense the Grammy people – who’re from all musical genres – would recognize this song and the heart Mac brings. For a little record like this – as big as country radio can be – to spend a couple weeks at the top of the charts, it touched people. So I’m honored to share this with my friend.”
“I’m blessed by the wonderful friends I’ve found through music and how generously they’ve shared their talent, songs and lives with me,” Chesney explains. “When something like a Grammy nomination happens for something that was just an honor, I can only feel humbled – and grateful.”
Here are the other nominees in the category:
- Beautiful World – Dierks Bentley & Patty Griffin
- Start A Band – Brad Paisley & Keith Urban
- I Told You So – Carrie Underwood & Randy Travis
- Everything But Quits – Lee Ann Womack & George Strait
Leading the nominations this year is Beyonce with ten nods, Taylor Swift with eight, and The Black Eyed Peas, Maxwell, and Kanye West with six nominations each.
Be sure to tune in tonight at 8 pm ET/PT on CBS to see if Kenny is a winner.
Update – Kenny and Mac did not win. Carrie Underwood and Randy Travis took home the award for “I Told You So.”
